If you have never dealt with a medical assignment of benefits claim, you are probably wondering how your employer or insurance company decides who is entitled to receive the benefits from your employer. The system for assigning benefits is based on what is known as a “group rate,” which is the percentage of the total compensation that you make for your job.
How does the system determine the group rate? Well, first of all, you cannot get away from it. You are assigned a group rate when you join your company, and it remains the same throughout your employment.
When it comes to the benefit amount, you cannot get away from it either. The employer and the employees will have to agree to the group rate that you make. The group rate is not the same for each employee, so the employer is the one that sets the rate.
So why do people want to handle the medical assignment of benefits process? Sometimes it is easier to let an agent or claims adjuster to handle this part of the medical insurance claim process, but in many cases it is best to do it yourself.

The insurance provider will send a form that you need to fill out to determine whether you are eligible for the assignment of benefits, and what benefits you are eligible for. You will also need to include information about any other health insurance policies that you may have, and your family medical history.
